Photonics4life scientist’s paper on the August Issue of PCCP

With their exclusive findings on Tip-enhanced Raman scattering (TERS) of oxidised glutathione on an ultraflat gold nanoplate a group around Prof. Jürgen Popp and Dr. Volker Deckert from the P4L-institute IPHT convinced the journal’s editorial board and as a consequence their paper now decorates the August issue’s inside front cover. The cover itself indicates the basic set up of Tip enhanced Raman scattering using gold as an active substrate and reflects the diversity of applications possible with the technology, including DNA analysis and the remarkable identification of single viruses.

Round Robin Experiment

Raman spectroscopy has already proved its effectiveness in many cases for medical diagnostics such as for cancer, cardiovascular diseases and infections. However, there are no standards in the different working groups, e.g. for sample preparation, implementation of the Raman experiments, spectra pre-treatment, data evaluation, etc.In a round robin experiment, the required groundwork will take place in order to define standardised Raman measurement methods, which will be fundamental for establishing Raman spectroscopy for clinical diagnostic procedures.

5th International Conference on Biophotonics

20 March 2017

Continuing the success of the previous meetings held in Sacramento, Ottawa, Jena, and Florence, the 5th conference will come to Perth, Western Australia, running over two full days, and back-to-back with the Science on the Swan medical research conference, which delegates are strongly encouraged to also attend, at discounted rates. [more]
